    Exactly the same here. While I certainly wouldn't mind having Bale on the bench (with 5 subs next season), it absolutely shouldn't be at the expense of signing a first teamer or even an exciting young prospect.

    That said, I think we should look back towards Eriksen before looking forward properly ;-)

    He was pretty mediocre though really wasn't he, despite some goals in secondary matches. He's then played 6 games in the intervening year and his sole motivation now is to not get injured. I don't really see the temptation, especially compared to some of the other options out there.

    Might make sense for him. If he likes living in madrid that is.

    Isn't his agent Jonathan Barnett?

    Yeah I didn't notice that. The quote is on loads of sites so I guess true.

    Well, if he goes to Cardiff I hope he makes his own travel arrangements.

    Better medical facilities and knowledge of his needs here, though.

    surely for a guy with his ability and injury record, it would be better for him to go to the US?

    If I was Bale I’d really think twice about joining Cardiff. Off course it’s a great nostalgic story. But the reality is that he’d be playing with crap players, receiving hospital passes and be on the end of some thunderous challenges.

    The championship is an unforgiving league. In the absence of skill they make up for it with hard graft. Bale will be the best player and a bit of a celebrity there. They’ll want to take him down a peg or two, and some would want to make a name for themselves. “I tackled Bale, he couldn’t get past me” etc. I think the tackles will be flying in. He’ll need to be very careful to avoid injury which is his ultimate goal.

    Think carefully, Gareth!

    would be a massive waste, he's still one of the best players in the world, he's just won another CL

    He was 90 minutes away from retiring last weekend. He's just looking for somewhere to keep fit for 5 months in the build up to the world cup. It's not like he's going to have a big indian summer to his career somewhere, he's just after an extended Wales training camp, especially after another year of getting no minutes (literally 6 appearances) at Madrid.

    Yeah click the watch on YouTube link. I had forgotten that he also got a few goals in other competitions.
